The Light in nature, comparisons with the lighting in our aquariums


La versione italiana è qua: La Luce in natura, comparazioni con la luce in acquario

English version

During the MagnaModena held Sunday February 8, we had the good fortune to attend a presentation by Nicola Gandini, owner of the company Elos, talked about the function and characteristics of light in nature and in the aquarium. Building on measurable data, and not by the usual thought.

I then took the report and I have expanded it with my knowledge and I have made it more readable, so I thank Nicola for submitting original and I hope that in this way you will better understand the various interactions that are mentioned, for each question, please leave your comment below where I will be happy to respond.

Elos E-Power


for english version please click here

Finalmente disponibili le Elos E-Power sia in versione 150w che 250w, con e senza ballast.

Dopo averle viste a Norimberga mi viene voglia di farci un pensierino, anche se sarei indeciso se prendere la versione da 150w o quella più classica da 250w.

Certo dopo tutto questo tempo di T5… la scelta è ardua, ma le misurazioni di lumen che feci con fra le 150w e le 400w a confronto mi colpirono, e sono molto curioso di provarle sul campo.

Voi che ne dite? Passo da T5 ad Hqi per provarle? Da 150w o da 250w?

Potete trovare maggiori informazioni sulle 150w qua: Elos E-Power 150w

E sulle 250w qua: Elos E-Power 250w

It’s finally possibile to order the new Elos E-Power, from HQi 150w or 250w.

They’re fantastic!!! And now I’m tempted to buy a couple for my tank, my decision is between 150w or 250w… what do you think about?

Yes because I measured lumen when I had 150w and 400w side by side… and at one meter, into the center, I measured 30% less lumen with 150w, but at the corner (yes corner in a circle 🙂 )I measured +- 5%… incredible!!! And so I’m tempted… what do you think about?
